Summer Frittata with Linguine

We have been enjoying nice weather and eating outdoors just about every night for the last week.  In our local newspaper, I found this recipe for a frittata, and we loved it. I hope you'll give it a try. You can use any veggies of your choice so I'll be making this quite often this summer once my veggies from the CSA start rolling in.


Recipe by Jean Kressy

Nonstick cooking spray

2 teaspoons butter

2 cups diced summer squash

1/2 cup diced red bell pepper

3/4 teaspoon salt, divided

2 cups cooked linguine (4 ounces uncooked pasta)

1 (10-ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained well

1/3 cup chopped fresh basil

6 eggs

1/3 cup 2 percent reduced-fat milk

1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

1. Coat a large ovenproof skillet with cooking spray. Add butter and melt over medium-high heat. Add squash, red pepper and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until squash is lightly browned, about 6 minutes.

2. Add linguine, spinach and basil to squash mixture. Whisk eggs, milk, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Pour over noodle mixture. Jiggle pan to make sure egg mixture seeps down among noodles. Cover and cook until top is almost set, about 8 minutes.

3. Preheat broiler. Sprinkle cheese on top and broil until golden brown. Serves 6.

Have you tried Martha's Triscuits yet? I found them in Hannaford's today, and they make a tasty, summer snack. I topped the Triscuits with avocado slices, added chili flakes and squeezed some fresh lemon. 

This weekend we will toast some marshmallows, and make s'mores with the toasted coconut Triscuits. 
I am joining Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday.
P.S. Colleen and Annie, I will be bringing a box with the fixins to the Country Living Fair next weekend ;o)

  5. That sounds delicious, Debbie! We love frittatas too and one dish meals are always a good way to go in the summer. I heard about the new Tricuits but haven't looked for them yet. I think I would like them :)
